He is a courageous young man who has been through an awful lot already. With support he will surely come through again but this will not be thanks to the Sierra Leonean health system. TB drugs are free in Sierra Leone and yet fully trained and experienced doctors twice gave him an incomplete course of treatment. Anyone needing health care in Sierra Leone is really in trouble. Through the kind offices of a Ghanaian friend who is helping him navigate the Ghanaian system, he has managed to get some treatment but as a foreigner he is in a very vulnerable position still.
We need doctors. We need compassionate, honest and accountable doctors.
